Have you bought your turkey yet? Thanksgiving is nearly a week away! We’re not just excited because of the delicious food and good times with family and friends that is approaching, but we’re also ecstatic that the Dallas YMCA’s annual Turkey Trot will be utilizing the RedFlag mass notification system for the second year in a row.
Last year, Pocketstop and the Dallas Y successfully implemented the RedFlag emergency mass notification system to provide race participants with mobile safety alerts — providing a key communication channel and peace of mind to participants.
Will you be participating in the 47th annual Turkey Trot? Signing up for mobile safety alerts via the RedFlag mass notification system is easy. Simply text the keyword “Trot” to 444222*. You’ll be provided a link in order to register your phone number and email address into the RedFlag mass notification system. Don’t worry, your information will be protected and removed from the RedFlag mass notification system database after the race is complete.
“One of the RedFlag mass notification system’s most popular features gives users the ability to select their own communication preferences” says Brian Teague, Pocketstop’s Chief Technology Evangelist. For the Turkey Trot, once registered, race participates can select which communication channels they wish to receive notifications — email, voicemail or text (or all of them!). After selecting their preferences, Turkey Trot participants are ready to receive alerts including important pre-race reminders, last-minute changes, severe weather warnings, alerts about lost children or life-threatening incidents throughout the event.
